What to Name a Fan-Written 'Pathfinder of 4e'?


4th Edition


As you may know -- hey, I'm being optimistic here! -- I'm writing a 4e revamp. A sort of 4e Pathfinder, except not concerned with backwards compatibility. I'm not making changes for the sake of change, but I already have a set of 4e-compatible house rules; what I'm writing is more systemic. It will look, feel, and play like 4e (sans really long combat). I've been calling it Heartbreaker 4 (HB4), but that's just a working title.

Some not-so-coy ideas I've had:

4Ever
4Ever After
4Ever Quest (okay, just joking!)
4th Finder

And one more coy idea:
Misfits & Mayhem (stolen from Armchair Gamer's excellent categorizations of D&D styles)

Opinions and ideas are appreciated!

PS: If the above description of HB4 isn't enough, you can read a more detailed summary here.

Expedition

...I see what you did there.

(I'd rather go with Audi Quattro; German cars are masterworks of engineering, much like my clone will be. ;) Also, quatro with two T's is even cooler than words with X!)

Silver Crusade

Forerunner. ;)

srsly though, it might be better for such a thing to find its own name and identity. Pathfinder doesn't have 3 or 3rd in it's name after all. :)

Personally, I'd take the feel of the game you want to evoke with 4th-derived rules and try to get a name from that rather than a name that explicitly identifies its parent edition. It could wind up being anything from a "X-word and other X-word" variation or the single evocative word route. (admittedly a lot of those are taken now, I was just about to suggest "Saga").


4dventure?

I'm calling mine Dungeons 5 Dragons, so Dungeons 4 Dragons?


The votes are in, and Forerunner won by quite a bit!
